Rimac unveils the 1900 HP Concept Two electric hypercar


The four-electric motors (one for each wheel) in the Rimac C_Two electric hypercar is powered by a 120 kWh Lithium-Manganese-Nickel battery.

One of the biggest highlights of the world's most important motor show in Geneva was the announcement of Mate Rimac's new supercar, the "Concept Two", which is completely different from its predecessor, the Concept One.

The front wheels have a single-speed transmission as in conventional electric cars while the rear wheels get a 2-speed gearbox.

The price for the model that puts the hyper into the electric auto is a cool £2.3m.

The Rimac C_Two makes 1887bhp and 2300Nm of torque (Yes, you've read it right!). The Tesla Roadster can hit 100km/h in 1.9 seconds.

Pa. says its bad flu-season has 'peaked'
The number of flu cases reported during the week leading up to Saturday was less than the half number reported at the peak. In January, a Fremont County child died from the flu, the first pediatric flu death in the state.

Built of carbon fiber, the Rimac Concept Two cuts a dramatic figure. With an active front hood and rear spoiler, the Rimac Concept Two offers atremendous amount of downforce and a drag coefficient of just 0.28.

The vehicle has Level 4 autonomy, so it will basically be able to drive on its own but will still require a driver to be behind the wheel. Tracks can be loaded into the onboard computer to provide coaching on the racing line, braking, turn-in and acceleration points.

Speaking of features, Rimac C_Two gets eight cameras, six radars, a lidar and twelve ultrasonic sensors that enables auto braking, lane assist and self-driving functions. The vehicle can also monitor weather and road conditions to automatically adjust suspension and all-wheel drive performance accordingly.

Production of the Rimac C_Two is limited to around 100 units, each costing over $1.25 million. That's about 500 more than pundits were expecting, and will accelerate it to 258 miles per hour in 1.85 seconds, Rimac says.
